About this deal

The Neon Leon debut album was released in 1983 (funded by Mick Jagger) as a Swedish-only LP but featured Blondie’s Clem Burke as well as notorious KBD star Snuky Tate, and showcases a sold late 70’s Stones vibe perfectly ripe for radio consumption, in a better world, that is… fast forward to the 21st century and Leon still holds it down in Germany these days, still performs occasionally, and we’re extremely proud to finally get these 70s-80s era recordings back into circulation, so make sure to check out both of Neon Leon’s books (Fast Track to Hell and New York City Babylon) crank it up, and don’t ever look back! Sometimes the novels chosen are new, often they are from the backlist and occasionally re-issued from way back. At the club Bad News he met the record company owner Sanyi Tandan who offered him a recording contract and later released the successful single "Movin In The Right Direction" and later the album Artificial Stimulation (1983) with his group Neon Leon And The Bondage Babies.

He is stuck in a bright, neon orange skin that doesn’t camouflage well in the desert, in the jungle, or really anywhere at all.The books are wonderful, interactive in a variety of ways, are inclusive/diverse with a variety of subjects. Like Wee Unicorn, for example, this beautiful picture book is all about fitting in, finding your place but also standing out. I read this out loud to my storytime group today, and it wasn't until I was faced with an audience that I decided I didn't like this nearly as much as I originally thought. Neon Leon was hanging out in Philadelphia when his first band Neon Leon and the Rainbow Express was formed and early (around 73/74) got the chance to be opening act for the rock group New York Dolls.

Yourself and Bob are much cherished in our booky world and I personally really appreciate everything that you do. In June 2005, Jane moved from the Netherlands back to Kent (near Deal) in England where she now lives. Then again, the rich colour contrasts are beautiful, just as we love in Britta Teckentrup’s art work. Despite the record deal falling through, Neon Leon was still asked to perform for the NYC album launch party for Some Girls, and remained on great terms with the Stones camp. Although he’s a chameleon that ‘ can change colour to match wherever they go‘, it seems that Leon’s different.But by the story’s end, children will be clapping and cheering for Leon because they will feel like they personally played a part in his happy ending. The tracks collected on the digital compilation from Hozac capture a wild musician straddling punk, glam and 70s rock. This archival LP collects all of the Neon Leon 7” releases from his 1979-84 period and makes these overseas-only recordings available in the US for the first time, cementing the Neon Leon legend in the sacred halls of the US punk pantheon.
